Pronounced ‘Zoy-ah’, this jewellery brand by designer Zoha Mijic reflects her global travels and a fascination with blending high and low fashion influences. From ‘OTT’, luxe creations to edgy street-inspired wares, her creations are standalone statements for confident fashionistas.
Philosophy by Jenni Button
From ready-to-wear, on-trend garments that move from day to night to her classic, seasonal printed dresses, sharply tailored suits and a host of complementary accessories, Jenni Button’s Philosophy brand is known for its figure-flattering creations that straddle classic and contemporary styling perfectly.
There are few South African A-listers who don’t have an Errol Arendz garment in their arsenal. This local fashion doyen has been creating extraordinary, feminine fashions for three decades and his understanding of the female form is without comparison. Errol’s shoe designs are as impressive and desirable as his ready-to-wear creations.
Artist-cum-designer Victoria has married her photographic skills with a passion for organic fabrics and its ability to be transformed into wearable art. Victoria’s ultra stylish and sustainable collection of photographic printed, hand spun and woven textured fabric blend scarves, is both covetable and utterly collectable.
Lalesso and Joya
Inspired by the prints and patterns found in Kenya, designers Olivia Kennaway and Alice Heusser have created a much-lauded clothing brand with impeccable Fairtrade credentials. Embracing exotic detailing and on-trend style, their designs have an unmistakeable appeal.
From bespoke pieces of wearable art to colourful accessories to match your mood, Joya jewellery has a distinctive South African-ness. Using only the finest semi precious stones, leather and silver to create each item, fashion lovers will appreciate that these beautiful pieces team perfectly with both casual and couture ensembles. Look out for the handcrafted bracelet made especially to celebrate Women’s Month.
NEO celebrates exquisite craftsmanship with their carefully curated selection of wares and their showcase of intricately beaded sculptures by this contemporary, wire-art collective, promises to be nothing short of show stopping. Netshomi Zam is the result of a collaboration between Mike Carella and Riaan Hanekom and the result is show-stopping. Browse a special collection of beaded, wirework offerings depicting some of the flora and fauna of Southern Africa – each piece is an undoubted collector’s item in the making.
NEO Boutique is open from 09h00 until 20h00 daily. Be sure to diarise the Trunk Show dates where you’ll be able to meet the respective designers in person over a complimentary glass of bubbly. For further information about the NEO Boutique Truck Show series visit www.oneandonlycapetown.com
